WILFRED CAMPBELL. 



REQUIEM. 



Edwapd the Peaoemakep. 

With Earth's republics bowed in woe, 

And Europe's monarchs round his bier, 

And mighty pageant sad and slow, 

And solemn note of trumpet blown, 

And muttering drum and organ's moan, 
Prom duty, honour and renown, 
We lay our august Edward down. 



Miles of mill'ons down each street, 
Britannia's ont. huge heart-beat 

Of human grief; as rank on rank. 
In mighty marshalled mournful flow, 

Beside old Thames' storied bank, 
Where Earth's high kinga in sorrow go; 
Passes the pageant of her woe. 



Oct round wide leagues of plangent surge, 

And looming coastlines huge and gray, 
Where Ocean moans eternal dirge, 

The moon and stars his torches dim; 
Great Edward's millions grieve and pray. 

And bow the head in wee for him. 
In those wide continents of his sway, 

O'er verges of the world's far rim. 



>i 



II. 



Low lies his ^.k1 this 8»d May morn, 

The saddest ever poet rhymed, 
Or brought the milkwhite to the thorn; 
Low lies hia head, who monarch born 

To eminence he never climbed 
Through promises he ne'er fulfilled; 

Who never merited our scorn, 
Nor made him principles that chimed 
With what he deemed the public willed; 

Who never flattered men by lie, 
To hold in jjrasp a people's will; 
Nor flamed the torch of fancied ill, 

To voice the loud majority. 

Who born to what he never sought, 
Ennobled all his kingly lot, 
Performed his duty >n hia place, 
True scion of his royal race, 
Took up in la^f^r life that crown 
From his great . ^other's brow laid down ; 
And strove with putience, leal to all, 
To be a ruler in a day 
Of restless, democra';ic sway. 



i 



Who born to this; yet at his end 

Was lov6d more in spite of fault 

Than all earth's great 'neath heaven's vault 

Who from obscurity did ascend. 
Nor is there one 'mid earth's strong ones 

W^ould dare to cast a stone at him 
Who ever faced the foeman's guns. 

And at that fateful gateway grim, 
When Lis star sank in death's eclipse. 
Went out with "duty" on his lips. 



m. 

Hit lowly luhjects round bis throne. 

Hold sorrow in their benrts and eyes 
For him the bumAn and the win*, 

Who made their joyn and woes his own ; 
Who with wide Hyinpathy did span 

All fiercest gulfa of Bocial bate, 

Till even fo«»8 of kingly state 

Revered the monarch in the man. 

Ir maJHaty we lay him down, 

Wi b England's banner balf-maat furled, 

'Mid all the Borrow of a world, 

Id that great, ancient Royal town, 

Where England's splendid castle stands, 

Glory of all her storied lands, 

Moated by old Father Thames, 

Fampd stream of thronm and diadems. 

'Mid tolling slow of funeral bell, 

And far-ofl" organ's mournful swell, 

And minute gun's low muttering ; 

This, England's latest, greatest King, 

Scion of a royal line, 

Half of earth and half divine, 

And heir of all its old renown, 

'Mid pageant sad we lay him down^ 

In that dread chamber of the vast. 

To sleep with all her sceptred past, 

Those great of Britain's age of gold 

And all her splendid thrones of old, 

Who rest in death's felicity ; 

Wise Alfred ; Normift William ; he, 

Her Lion-heart of chivalry ; 

And those famed queens, still great in death, 

Victoria, Elizabeth !
